Curtis + Natalie Married!

Curtis and Natalie are good friends of mine and got married at the beginning of the month. They had a beautiful day and it meant a lot for me to be a part of it!

The guys were a lot of fun to work with. We had a great picture session before the wedding!

Here are some of the bride and the girls:

The first look and a few couple shots:

This is one of my favorite shots of the day. The ceremony began with a prayer and Curtis' Dad stood up to lay a hand on his son while praying for him. Definitely a powerful moment.

A few details from the day:

Congrats Curtis and Natalie! Thanks for a great day. I wish you the best in your new life together!

Thad + Laura Wedding Part II: Portrait Session

Here is the next set of my favorites from Laura and Thad's wedding last month. After the "first look" we spent over 2 hours walking around the arboretum to take portraits, couple shots, and bridal party shots. It was such a great group to work with. It was a ridiculously hot afternoon and nobody complained at all despite the heavy clothes, heat, and amount of walking we did. They were troopers! Even though it was the middle of the day and lighting wasn't ideal, the arboretum is such a beautiful place and I loved the variety of terrain we got to shoot in. Everything from prehistoric forests to rose gardens to bamboo forests.

Here are some shots of the bridesmaids and groomsmen:

The wedding party!

A few more couple shots:

How many brides get to walk through a prehistoric forest in their wedding dress?

I love this shot of Laura and her Mom...

A few detail shots of the bouquets.

The happy couple...

Off to the ceremony! This was one of my favorites of the day. I owe a big thanks to the wedding party for making it an awesome session.
